The Legal Education Board requires law school applicants to have a general weighted average of 2.5 or 80% in the pre-law course. To be accepted, applicants who meet this basic requirement must go through a 2-step screening process: the Law School Qualifying Test (LSQT) and the interview.
The LSQT, which consists of sub-tests in Verbal Reasoning, Critical Thinking, Quantitative Ability, and Figural Reasoning, plus a psychological test, is designed to measure certain abilities, skills, and behavior necessary in the study and practice of law. Examinees who obtain scores that fall within the percentile range set by the School are then scheduled for interview. After the interview the School determines who among the applicants will be admitted. Admission is based solely on merit, that is, the result of the interview, the LSQT score, and the general weighted average (GWA) in the pre-law course.
Applicants may be admitted with or without conditions. Applicants who are admitted with conditions must, on the first year, show satisfactory performance to be allowed to continue in the program. They will not be allowed to drop subjects or go on leave of absence except in cases of illness requiring extended hospitalization and recuperation.
